The United States Marshals Service, along with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and state and local agencies in 16 geographical locations across the U.S., led a 10-week national operation to find endangered missing children.
Operation We Will Find You is the first nationwide missing child operation focused on geographical areas with high clusters of critically missing children.
The operation was conducted in the following locations: the National Capital Region (Eastern Virginia, Washington D.C. and Maryland); Massachusetts; South Carolina; New Orleans, Louisiana; San Antonio, Texas; Detroit, Michigan; Yakima, Washington; Orlando metro, Florida; Los Angeles, California; Northern Ohio, Guam; Puerto Rico; and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Operation We Will Find You presented the U.S. Marshals Service with an opportunity to expand and highlight partnerships among law enforcement agencies and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) that resulted in not only finding critically missing children but also bringing more attention to the epidemic of missing children in America.
